Some Valentine’s Day gifts I wouldn’t mind getting…

Valentine's Day Gifts: Lively Lingerie

I have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. Is it a commercially-driven holiday, meant to coerce you into sharing Hallmark cards, candy (that I really could do without), and unnecessarily-expensive dinners with your S.O.? Totally. But there’s also something lovely about jerking yourself out of the everyday routine and making a gesture toward the one you love. Celebrating love. I can get on board with that.

When you’re married as long as I have been (it will be two decades this spring, which I can hardly believe), it’s also nice to keep yourself in check— am I living in sweatpants? Is my hair in a perma-topknot? Or am I doing my part to keep our relationship exciting? That’s not my job alone (hi, feminists) but it’s silly to think it’s not a really important part of any relationship, and that both people don’t have to work hard at it.

So this Valentine’s Day, I’m giving in to the hype and indulging. I’m going to be hinting at a few of these Valentine’s Day gifts, and purchasing a few others on my own to ensure that love sticks around for another 20.
